A sample itinerary for the Sail Kos to Rhodes, sailing holiday from Wildside could include:
Day 1 Kos to Tilos: Quaint island peaceful and quiet with old windmills. Good kayaking and beaches near the main port of Lividia
Day 2: Tilos to Halki: Pristine crystal clear waters ideal for swimming. Nimporio, only town and harbour, maintains traditional architecture. Many beaches only accessible by boat or walking. Neat restaurants and bars. A stop at the now deserted island of Alimia is on the cards. It was used as an anchorage and observatory for the Rodian fleet. A tower was constructed that survives till today on the eastern side and was used for the construction of a Medieval Castle in 1475 by the Knights of Saint John, who had conquered Dodecanese by then.
Day 3 and 4: Halki to Rhodes: Sail along the coast and moor in Mandraki, near the Old Town, to explore one of Greece’s most spectacular forts and Old Cities., with the Knights Templar castle forming the majestic old town Winding streets in which even locals get lost – but always a bar or restaurant so not too bad. Rhodes is famous since antiquity as the site of the Colossus of Rhodes one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
Day 5: Rhodes to Simi: A picturesque mountainous island with a large British expat population and an intriguing harbour. Girolas Bay only 1km from harbour is pristine. Cycling, hiking, swimming and exploring (many restored houses and churches) makes this one of the highlights. Plus on the south side a very safe and good mooring allows access to the T Monastery of Panormitis and of course a great taverna nearby
Day 6: Sail to Nisyros. Home of a semi-dormant volcano, hot springs and ancient ruins are on offer. Spectacular views from mountain top town of Nikia, or a fishing harbour for mooring at in Pali with a bunch of local tavernas that dish up spectacular Greek seafood cuisine.
